    My dude I just read every single damn comics which explains the war dor Cybertron and pre war and they were all better and more mature than this. Yes I'm asking for deaths, energon blood and stuff, slavery and this shit. I just wanted the Cybertron games and idw comics animated, why would I be a child for that?

    My guy if you want a childish tf media just go watch cyberverse

    It's hard for some people to wrap their heads around the idea that the next generation needs their own G1...

    We should be so lucky as to EVER get a movie as good as Wreck It Ralph, WALL-E, Inside Out, or Coco.

    They're not literally reused designs though. The designs are tangibly new, but unlike the previous Transformers movies you can tell who each one is supposed to be.

    Not too impressed so far. Just looks like another TF cartoon.

    What do you believe makes it so bad? I don't particularly feel like it's amazing, but this seems pretty standard for kids media today.

    I DO love those!

    "Edgy G1" sounds terrible.

    -ZacWilliam, this trailer hit the nail for me.

    Yep. A kids movie can be scary in different ways than films targeting adults. The dragon at the end of Sleeping Beauty, the giant snake in Aladdin....kids media can help kids learn about stuff in ways they can comprehend without having to grapple with the bigger aspects of adulthood.

    Just because this movie has jokes doesn't mean it's not going to include moments that may scare younger audiences, or deal with things like friendship/betrayal in ways kids can understand.

    Considering that this is the first theatrical release (not counting re-releases of the '86 film) of a Transformers animated film since the '86 films (38 years!) this is quite... disappointing.

    You had kids traumatized from their favourite characters being killed off just to promote newer toys and made a cult classic!

    I feel like this trailer encapsulates that very boomer mindset that "cartoons are for kids!", because Transformers media made for ALL ages has been done before but the newer shows after Prime seem very G-rated now days and it seems to have influenced this film. It doesn't need to be as dark or edgy as Transformers Prime, but you're trying to convince us with this tone that right after this origin story LONG ONGOING PLANETARY WAR is meant to take place right after?

    Again, probably judging this too harshly because they made us wait another hour for some dumb hype gimmick but hopefully more trailers will do this film justice. For positives, animation style looks alright, Chris Hemsworth actually sounds good as a young Prime/Orion Pax, while I don't think Keegan has the voice for Bee his delivery is actually alright. Megatron is just a straight war crime though...

    Transformers as a series has always had light-toned fun throughout, but making the FIRST trailer focus on that so hard when people were anticipating an origin story like War for Cybertron or the IDW comics that is a lot different in tone seems like a misplay.

    Ah yes Cyberverse. The show that killed off all four of the big-name Decepticons, something NO other TF cartoon has ever done.

    This doesn't look like something I would enjoy unfortunately. The aesthetic, lighting and colour palette remind me a lot of Lightyear, which I didn't like. Alpha Trion and the Quintesson have sweet designs, but the main four look a bit flat and boring, which I'm guessing is intentional for before they gain the ability to transform, but they still look flat and boring afterwards so it doesn't quite work for me.
    The dumb jokes are also really off-putting, it could just be how the trailer is edited but they seem to be trying a little bit too hard with the gags. Yeah there's no Romeo and Juliet laws or Sam's happy time, and that's definitely a good thing, but I don't like this movie's type of humour either, and I don't think I could sit through a full 90+ minutes of it.

    No they are very reused. Shockwave is just evergreen 2.0 and Soundwave looks like a bad G1 toys I've seen many times. Their foc designs beat those pretty hard

    Probably won’t see that final falling out until the final 10 mins.

    Was hoping for Into the Spider-verse but got The Emoji Movie instead.
